I think a girl will be HRH Princess Shanique-Laqueeta Silvia of Sweden and a boy will be HRH Prince Diamond-Demarco Carl of Sweden. Any guess is as good as it is, of course. We have seen Cassius, we have seen Luana and Zaria, we have seen Xan, we have seen Columbus...

Coloumbus worried me slightly as it was allegedly also the name of the family dog.

I think it will be a little sister for Estelle, but it doesn't really matter if boy or girl.

And I doubt that the name will be easy to guess. The parents will probably look for a name that has a family connection, but is not so common, not oldfashioned, and sounds pleasing to them.

I don't know which provinces there are to give the little one a duchy. What is still available?

I don't care one way or another on the gender.

The name will probably not be many of the suggested since they sound very old-fashioned in today's Sweden and both Victoria and Madeleine have gone for more international names. So I wont even try to guess.

On the duchy, I selfishly hope they will give Småland, since that's where I live :P

I'm guessing a boy, name: Bertil

so, with my usual accuracy in these polls, that probably won't happen

(if it's a girl, i'd bet the name Lilian could be a contender)

They may "save" Bertil for a possible future son of Prince Carl Philip.

I hope they choose a province that has not previously had a Duke of Duchess.

I would be very surpised if Victoria named a child Bertil. It's a "old mans" name. Although old mens names are getting more popular in Sweden I highly doubt it's in Victoria and Daniels taste, based on the name Estelle. Depending on how fond Sofia and CP is on "grandpa" names, Bertil might be possible on their kid though.

Bertil seems to be a name slowly getting popular again, from 14 boys given the name as first name (tilltalsnamn) in 2010 to 36 last year. (from SCB, Statistics Sweden)

Yeah, I know. As I said "granpa" names are getting more popular.. But usually together with a girl named Ingrid, Saga, Iris, Maja, Elsa etc. Not from the same parents nameing their child Estelle. I could be very wrong, but it just doesn't feel like "them"

Well, I have to say that, to this American's ears, Estelle sounds pretty "grandma" to me, lol. But, since it's hardly a common name in Sweden, I can see how it would sound more international and somewhat exotic than old-fashioned.

I really hope they don't get cutesy with the names and go with a "E" name. Can't see them using either Frederick or Christian if it's a boy given how close they are to the Danish RF.

I don't have any specific guesses though. They really surprised us all with Estelle.

Yeah... I understand you. But it's not at all "swedish" so in that sense it's international :)

Many names go through the stages of being "grandpa / mom", "dad/mom" names and finally being popular for babies again.

Estelle was so out of left field I can't begin to imagine the second one's name -only that I doubt it will be something predictable.

My immediate guess would be that it's a boy but that might just be wishful thinking

Carl Edmund Olof Fredrik
Bertil Folke Gustaf Olof
Eugen Olof Carl Oskar

Lilian Alice Ingrid Anna
Ingrid Alice Lilian Eugènie
Mathilda Ingrid Hedvig Lilian

Duchy:
Skåne or Västerbotten

Godparents:
Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark
Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway
Princess Madeleine of Sweden
A Westling relative (probably Hedvig Blom) or a close friend of Daniel
A Magnuson or Sommerlath relative or a close friend of Victoria

My vote goes to another girl for Victoria and Daniel
I think that Estelle will get a little baby sister!

My guess for new princess

- Names / Duchy
HRH Princess Lunette Sofia Lovisa Élisabeth of Sweden ,
Duchess of Södermanland
(Little princess's name means 'moon' while big sister's name means 'star')

- Godparents
Princess Sofia of Sweden
Crown Princess Élisabeth of Belgium , Duchess of Brabant
One of the Sommerlath relatives
One of the Westling relatives
One of the Victoria and Daniel's close friends

I'm not predicting if the new baby is a girl or a boy. Looking how they named Estelle, I suggest:
Girl:
Lilian Anna Alice Amelie
Lilian – from the beloved “Auntie”, Lilian and Estelle sound good together and it would be great to have a princess Lilian again at the royal family
Anna – from Daniel’s sister
Alice – from Victoria, and Victoria’s both grandmothers
Amelie – from Madeleine

Boy:
Erik Gustaf Gunnar Daniel
Erik – old name of kings, and Erik and Estelle sound good together
Gustaf – from the King, better choice than Carl
Gunnar – from Daniel’s father

Godparents:
Princess Madeleine
Queen Mathilde
Hereditary Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
Gustaf Magnuson
Hedvig Blom or Caroline Kreuger Nilsson

Duchy: Västerbotten, the duchy of Victoria's grandparents, who also lived at the Haga Palace. It would be good to get a duchy in the north.

The choice of the horrible name Estelle for the future Queen is not promising for my wish that the parents choose a traditional Swedish name.

Prince Vilhelm, Prince Sigvard, Prince Eugen, Prince Gustav, Prince Axel, Prince Ludvig, that sort of names.

Princess Thekla, Princess Gunilla, Princess Ingegard, Princess Solveig, Princess Ragnhild, that sort of names.
